Apple is working to develop home robots

After abandoning plans to develop its own electric vehicle, Apple continues to search for its revolutionary new product that will help it maintain its dominance in the market and serve as a new source of revenue. According to the news published in Bloomberg with the signature of Mark Gurman, one of the areas that the company focuses on is personal robots. It is said that Apple started working on robots and electric vehicles simultaneously and developed a machine that does not require human intervention.

Apple's robotics projects are still in a very early stage. But Blomberg noted that the company has started working on a mobile robot that can follow users around their homes and is developing a desktop device that uses the robot to move the screen around.

While Apple's robotics projects are still in the very early stages, Bloomberg said they have started working on a mobile robot that can follow users around their homes and are developing a desktop device that uses a robot to move the screen.

The aim with this device is to create a machine that can mimic head movements and lock onto a single person in the group, possibly for a better video calling experience. Since the robots in question must be able to move on their own, the company is also exploring the use of algorithms for navigation.

According to the news, Apple's home devices group is carrying out the development process of these robots. It is stated that an engineer who previously worked on the electric car project also joined the team.

Apple executive has not yet agreed on robot projects

But robots are not like phones in the sense that people need them in their lives today. Apple is apparently worried about whether people will pay “top dollar” for the robots they have in mind, and executives still can't come to an agreement on whether the company will continue working on these projects.

Gurman had previously stated that Apple could sell its electric car for 100 thousand dollars. This shows that the company has given up a serious potential to increase its revenue. However, since Apple Car is now out of the picture, it is said that the company has shifted its entire focus to new products such as Vision Pro and smart home hub. It should be noted that Apple may abandon these projects in the future and switch to other products.
